Jenny Upton was guest speaker for our meeting at Belmont library (as you know we have our 5 meeting of any month at the Library)
Jenny is president of the Geelong Branch of Knitted knockers Australia which is associated with the knitted knockers in the USA

Knitted Knockers Australia as championed by Cheryl Webster of Burwood, who did the hard work in setting up and running Knitted Knockers Australia
Knitted Knockers are just that: cotton knitted boobs designed to be a comfortable and cost effective alternative to Silicon based prosthesis
 
Knitted knockers are FREE 100% cotton prosthesis hand knitted in Australia and provided to breast cancer women who have had a mastectomy. Kits are also available for people who like to knit. “Communities Helping Women”. Knitted knocker branches set up kits for national quality control and ensure there is duty of care over the service to the breast cancer survivor.
 
The knockers come in 7 sizes A-G and Jenny informed us even the oldest person she has fitted (93 years old) got a new lease on life from her knitted knocker.
This is a great service fulfilling an important need and as with many good causes is provided by volunteers. Knitted knocker groups are always on the lookout for more volunteers to be knitters or branch committee members or both.
President Peter thanked Jenny and knitted knockers for an informative presentation and presented a cheque to assist in their work.
Driftwood café in Ocean Grove kindly donated 4 meal vouchers to the Club to be the raffle prizes for the night
